Find out how this dermal filler could smooth and even out your skin.
Are you tired of looking in the mirror and only seeing wrinkles? It’s amazing how even the smallest wrinkle can affect your appearance and your self-esteem. This is where our Encino, CA dermatologist Dr. Alex Eshaghian comes in. Find out more about Juvederm and what it can do for you.
What is Juvederm?
Juvederm belongs to the hyaluronic acid dermal filler family. When these dermal fillers are injected into the skin it can target moderate to severe wrinkles and folds in the face. It is a particularly great option for someone looking to reduce the appearance of lines around the corners of their mouth.
This smooth hyaluronic acid gel is a sugar that is already naturally occurring in the body. When injected into the skin, hyaluronic acid naturally holds water to provide added volume to the area and to smooth out the skin.
Does getting Juvederm hurt?
When people hear injections they immediately worry that it will hurt. You’ll be happy to know that besides a slight pinch when they enter the skin, these needles are very small and produce minimal discomfort. If you are still worried about the discomfort we can also apply a topical numbing cream to the area beforehand.
When will results show up and how long will results last?
You may notice some swelling right after your injections but this should go away after a day. Once swelling goes down you should notice that your skin is visibly smoother.
Juvederm results are only temporary but if you are happy with your results and want to maintain them you can get follow-up injections about every 9 months to one year. During these follow-up treatments, smaller injections will be used in order to achieve the same results.
